• I never smile when I have a bat in my hands. That's when you've got to be serious. When I get out on the field, nothing's a joke to me. I don't feel like I should walk around with a smile on my face.

    As quoted in the July 31, 1956 issue of "The Milwaukee Journal"; reproduced in "Baseball's Greatest Quotations : An Illustrated Treasury of Baseball Quotations and Historical Lore" by Paul Dickson, (p. 2), 2009.
